Subject: [CR]Gillott fork blades ( for Norris.)

Gillotts were famous for their elegantly raked fork blades, bending them from straight over their own former. Harry Carrington told me that Mal Rees was desperate for a pair so Harry said he would put a pair in the post. Next day Mal was on the phone playing hell because the blades were straight!
    Norris, In answer to your request for fork blades, I have a crushed frame (Fell under a lorry) with a pair of usable forks. Put your dividers or calipers across the top of the blade just under the crown and let me know the measurement.
